Killarney is the ideal option for first-time buyers or long-time investors

Killarney is populated with apartment buildings.

Killarney is a quiet suburb located in the leafy north of Johannesburg.
Unlike some of the loud, flashy northern suburbs, Killarney is a very sedate and private suburb even though it is not far from popular areas such as Sandton and Rosebank. There has been a significant increase in the suburb’s property value and it continues to be one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods for many young professionals.
What was once a suburb populated mainly by Jewish residents, Killarney has transformed over the years and is now home to many young urban professionals from all walks of life. Many of these young professionals are in Killarney because of the advantage it has in terms of proximity to key areas such as Rosebank, Parktown, Sandton and Braamfontein for both work and play.
Killarney is populated with apartment buildings and also has some very affluent homes much like its neighbours Houghton and Saxonwold. As Killarney continues to grow into a more trendy address, some of the apartment buildings in the suburb have become well-known for their incredible art deco style.
The Killarney Mall is within fairly close proximity to most of the homes and apartments in the neighbourhood. The mall offers a range of lifestyle stores and daily essentials for your convenience. What also makes the mall ideal is the fact that it is generally quiet compared to shopping centres such as Rosebank and Sandton. For those looking for more, they can simply visit Rosebank and Sandton offering entertainment, food and fashion for everyone.
The well-known Zoo Lake and Johannesburg Zoo are just a few minutes away for those looking for a day outing with family and friends. Also, not far is the Wilds Nature Reserve for those looking to experience nature. The famous Munro Drive in Houghton is also just on the other side of the reserve for you to go experience the incredible view of Sandton like you’ve never seen before.
Just next door to Killarney is Saxonwold where you can go visit the South African Military Museum. In Rosebank, you can visit venues such as the incredible Circa Gallery, African Craft Market and as well as the Rooftop Market.
In Killarney and areas surrounding the suburb, there are private and public schools available including King Edward VII School, St John’s College, Parktown Public School, Holy Family College, Saxonwold Primary, Houghton School and Rodean.
Properties in Killarney are ideal for first-time buyers, long-time investors and people just looking to start from scratch.
